IPTA 2014, hosted by the journal Inverse Problems, will be held in Bristol at the science museum At-Bristol on 26-28th August 2014. This conference represents a new forum to disseminate interdisciplinary inverse problems research and to facilitate increased engagement and collaboration within the international community.

The scientific committee, Professor Alfred K Louis, Professor Simon Arridge and Professor Bill Rundell, have organised a diverse scientific programme which combines mathematical and experimental work with theoretical, numerical and practical approaches to solving inverse problems. As well as supporting the applied mathematics community, the conference will also encompass a plethora of applications including the physical sciences, engineering, geophysics, radar, optics, biology, acoustics, communication theory, signal processing and imaging.

The conference will focus on cutting-edge research and will include plenary lectures from world-leading researchers, a range of mini symposia, a historic overview of the field and a public lecture. In support of the future research community, one plenary lecture will be awarded to a young researcher selected by the scientific committee.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Bristol in 2014!
